Rajmohan Gandhi joins AAP Party
New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) got a shot in the arm when Rajmohan Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, joined the party Friday.
"The party is vehemently opposed to corruption and this is what I liked in it. There is a disparity between the rich and poor and this also reflects in poor.
"If a common man joins and also becomes a part of politics then this is a welcoming step," Gandhi, son of Devidas Gandhi and maternal grandson of C Rajagopalchari said.
The 78-year-old Gandhi, who had contested against former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi from Amethi, has expressed his willingness to contest on a party ticket. The party, too has remained mum over the issue.
"I would like to contest elections, but it is upon the party to decide on this," Gandhi said, but refused to comment on his preferred constituency.
He added that he was approached by the party, but declined to reveal who he was in touch with from AAP and when was he contacted to join the party.
